Abby’s 18 Month Pediatrician Appointment & Stats

Alrighty…if there’s one thing I’m incredibly sure of, it’s the fact that Abigail HATES going to the doctor!  My oh my.

Today’s appointment was not fun. She literally started screaming at the top of her lungs (and if you’ve ever heard this little lady make some noise, you know she’s not exactly shy about reaching some hard-to-believe “notes”) the moment we walked into the room, climbed onto Mommy as if she instantly transformed into a monkey for the day, and never stopped crying until we got home.  And when we got home, she realized that she had “owies” on her legs (thanks to the band-aids for reminding her…), started crying again, and repeated “owie Mommy” over and over again.  This is from the girl who doesn’t flinch if she falls flat on her face after running 100 miles an hour.  There’s something about going to the doctor that just really gets her going.

And poor me (waaa waa waaa), I think I lost about a year off my life in that hour.

On the bright side, it’s always nice to know that a little frozen yogurt can make any pain go away (and Daddy would be proud – Abigail chose Salted Caramel today – his absolute favorite).

And on an even brighter note, this little lady is as healthy as a horse and continues to grow like a weed (and we obviously know her lungs are working incredibly well).

On that note, here’s a little recap of the past 18 months!
